Ok... ok.. PLEASE help me out here.
This will be my gateway drug into getting into photoshop, when I always told myself I'd never do that.
1. Say I ink a drawing, with nice thick thick lines. And I scan it. How do I get it so that I can fill/paint within the outlines with color?
2. Is there a way to do this with MS Paint?
The most basic of basic questions and I'd love if you can help me out. I don't have a mouse-pen either, just a mouse to do this.

1. Hm so you could use Photoshop's paint tool and it will "Fill" in the space, as long as the black lines are all connected? As opposed to using the brush tool like in your picture
Yea, the lines have to be touching. You can adjust the sensitivity of the paint bucket so if some lines were off by a hair it'll register it as connected. It's the tolerance setting that comes up when you have the paint bucket tool selected.
2. When I scan a drawing and paint in MS Paint, there are those gaps and space in between all the time. Photoshop has a more sophisticated 'paint / fill' system?
That's where Tolerance comes into play.
3. When I scan a drawing there are various shades of black and gray, even if the main outline is thick and black. How do I make a scanned drawing so that it is completely Black and White? I can play with the contrast and mid tone, but when I am done with that and try to paint within the lines, I always get those fuzzy gaps and dots like in Question 2.
Best way to do that is to use the levels command. Image--->Adjustments--->Levels
A little window pops up which lets you mess with the highlights and shadows of a pic. Mess around with the setting a little bit with the preview on and you get of feel of how dark your making your lines. There are 3 little triangles underneath the bar graph the one on the left is shadows, middle is midtones, and the one on the right are highlights. For scans like you mentioned I eyeball it but it's usually moving the highlights to the left a little and the black to the right with the midtones adjusted if necessary.

the comictool blog is cool. I read the cutting guide there but I have a better way to do it that was taught by a pro ad graph guy. You make 2 slits with an exacto knife. Stick your knife into the slits, and butt your ruler against the knife. The cut will be dead on and you won't have any lines left over.

As far as spotting blacks and digital painting, that's just a fundamental thing, YOu have to understand form to do it right. You can only get it through practice and studies, tutorials help only a little bit.
